Sakıp Sabancı Museum

The Sakıp Sabancı Museum is housed in a beautiful 19th-century Ottoman mansion called the Atlı Köşk (Horse Mansion), a reference to the prominent bronze horse statue in its front garden

The museum boasts excellent permanent holdings, including a painting collection consisting of select works of early Turkish artists and foreign artists that dwelled in Istanbul during the last period of the Ottoman Empire. The collection is mostly focused on the years 1850-1950, featuring the works of local artists like Osman Hamdi Bey, Nazmi Ziya Güran, and Fikret Mualla, as well as foreign artists such as Fausto Zonaro and Ivan Ayvazovski. The permanent holdings also include exhibits of calligraphy and other Islamic art, porcelain, furniture, and more.
